so, I have not seen the 3rd edition, but they dont come out very frequently so I would definitely get the newest one available - even if the fourth one is not up to date either. I think it makes sense to spend a little more money just to make sure you have the most up to date information!

But like I said, I have not seen the third one... Maybe it is very similar to the fourth.

The only difference between these two is that in 4th ed, there are three new long cases at the end.
